Keep The Noise Down

Hello luvs. Phew, what a warm summer!. On behalf of the band I'd like to wish our friends in Spain many congratulations on winning the World Cup. Commiserations also to our many friends in the Netherlands for making the final and coming so very close. Maybe next time.. I'd better not mention the England team..

Thanks to all who came to our show in Mogliano Veneto, Italy. From where I was standing, you looked like you were having a great night. 

For us, it was as fabulous as it was HOT. Our equipment went a bit random in the heat, but it didn't seem to detract from a great atmosphere in the beautiful old town square. Sorry we ran off afterwards without saying hello - we were up early in the morning for the flight home.

See you soon in the UK?.. or Poland ..or Germany?

Well that was a particularly violent world cup final.. looked suspiciously like Mark Kelly was refereeing. Enjoyed our excursion to Italy a couple of weeks back. Very hot, lovely town square, really good audience. It was a little tricky playing on rented equipment with swarms of flying ants buzzing around my head. Looking forward to the next two shows a lot..Leamington and The High Voltage Festival..Might even see my old partner in crime Steve Hackett..Hurrah!!



Well what a summer we're having I really enjoyed both festivals. It's nice to be back to playing live again. No honestly! Two very different festivals so far one in a big field on the outskirts of Madrid with Motorhead trying to shake us off at the other end, and then one in the most beautiful square with the sun trying to kill our gear and crew for that matter. All good memories to take away with us though. 

Since then I have been to Antigua, only for a week though, and now I'm back looking forward to the High Voltage festival. Please say hi if you see me, but not while I'm watching Focus.





As part of our plan to bring back some popular Marillion titles that are now out of print, we are pleased to announce that we have re-manufactured a limited run of 'A Piss Up In A Brewery' from 2002. Originally broadcast as an online webcast this DVD features performances of 'Sympathy', 'Number One', 'Dry Land', and 'How Will You Go' with Stephanie Sobey-Jones on Cello.

'Keep The Noise Down' is a sampler CD featuring some of the best moments from the 'Less is More' acoustic tour. This CD is an ideal way to get a flavour of what to expect from the 'Less is More' live download Series.



We have a new range of Merchandise coming to the website soon, Including t-shirts, mugs, mousemats and splash macs- so keep your eyes peeled.

A final reminder that Marillion will be working with instant music specialists Concert Live to produce an exclusive live CD of their performance at The High Voltage Festival in London on 25th

July. The CDs will be available straight after the performance and you can pre-order your copies now for either collection at the festival or for postage to wherever you want.


And finally - The Official Bootleg Box Volume from EMI Records. This 8-disc collectors box contains 8 individually packaged CDs covering a range of live shows from 1990-1994. The first 1000 copies sold at Racket Records will also receive a FREE Signed A4 print. (last few remaining)
